I heard that beethoven didn't like how Haydn taught, but venerated his music.

They were considered old fashioned at the time he composed them!

It wasn't concidered old-fashioned, but people thought it was to complex, that it wasn't natural (music used to be for people in higher classes only back then, but during that time it was changing, people wanted something "normal", because they were "normal" too). That point of view gave birth to the three styles of the pre-classical period: Empfindsamkeit/Sturm und Drang (C.P.E. Bach), Rococo (François Couperin "Le Grand") and Style Galant (J.C. Bach). Especially this last style, because of it's "simplicity", appealled to the "normal" people a lot. This style influenced composers like Mozart (who combined Style Galant with bits of Late Baroque).

I don't think that's true at all. Beethoven revered Haydn, and the influence is very apparent early on in Beethoven's career. His earlier works very much resemble Haydn, and Mozart to some degree, too.

Well, I had read that Beethoven had thought that Haydn's composition style was too "old-fashioned".
